Brief Answer:
You can resume urethral catheterization

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day


I assume you will be undergoing removal of Prostate by Transurethral Resection of Prostate (TURP).
You can safely continue using catheter for sex play. There is slight increased risk of Urethral stricture following Prostate removal.

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.


Take care
